Newsletter January 2017



Greetings from President Elsa: Happy New Year to everyone


Our Birthdays this month are: Gloria (16th); Manny (12th) and Jean (22nd)


Another New Year is upon us.  The time goes so quickly.


First of all the sad news, that is that Charles passed away very unexpectedly in November.  He will be missed.  His Memorial was held on December 19th and was very well attended and there were lots of good memories shared by the people who were there. He has been laid to rest next to his mother and father at the East Lawn Crematorium on Grant Road.


Our Christmas party was fantastic as usual.  The Garcias are always very generous by letting us rowdies invade their house.  We managed to donate 186 soft toys this year which will go to Toys for Toys and we also collected 62lbs of food to be delivered to the local Food Bank.


Photos were taken and posted on Facebook, Heart of the West. Please check them out.


Our Region 8 meeting is coming up on 6 January in Las Vegas and I will attach a letter for those members who are going.  We will be leaving on Friday 6th, so we will not be at TGIF Bowling.


We are starting our Special Olympic Tennis practice on January 14th after our first meeting of the year.

We will be at Rincon High School as usual.


 I will not tell you what it is now because I have to confirm details, but we will be having a special event sometime in the near future.  I will give you plenty of time to plan, so look forward to this whatever it will be.


Make New Year resolutions to keep your dues up to date.

We will be planning things throughout the year, so please try and join us in whatever it may be.  Other clubs do things that I think we should be able to do with the cooperation of more than just a few members of our club.


I would like to wish everyone a safe and healthy New Year.  I am looking forward to 2017 as our Centennial Year.
